6/1

Off the mark for connections at the fourth time of asking when landing a Listowel 1m contest on handicap debut earlier this month off a 5lb lower mark. Yard landed a double here on Saturday. Can improve again.

Zoffany colt. Half-brother to 1m winner Alexander James and Dam was a winner over this distance in France. Second of 14 beaten a head on an encouraging debut in a Naas 6f maiden earlier this month. Would not have to improve too much to land a blow.

Experienced five-race maiden but not discredited since making her debut in May. First-time cheekpieces may assist and market should be informative.

Fancy entries for later in the season have fell by the wayside following a number of below-par efforts since the No Nay Never colt made his debut last month. Looks up against it.

Colt by Tough As Nails out of a Imperial Ballet mare. Inexpensive€1,000 as a yearling. Half-brother to three winners including Spello, a winner over 7f. Market likely to reveal expectations on debut.

By Dragon Pulse retained by his vendor for €6,000 as yearling. Continues to impress following a second of eight beaten 3½L in a Roscommon auction contest over 7½f last month. Needs to improve but not ruled out in first-time visor.

Three-race maiden but running well in defeat in a couple of contests at Roscommon and here over a similar trip this month. Could emerge as a big danger.

Starspangledbanner filly. Not running as well as the majority of the yards other youngsters and hard to fancy until she shows hints of ability.

Daughter of Ivawood out of a Sadler's Wells mare. Mixed messages in a couple of career starts at Down Royal last month before a below-par effort at Listowel earlier this month. Yard in good form landing a double here on Saturday.

Betting

Forecast

Brunelle (6/5), Johan Zoffani (2/1), Champers Elysees (5/2), Xian Express (7/2), Franklin Street (6/1), Seven Worlds (14/1), Laurel Grove (16/1), Joven (16/1), Ivy Avenue (33/1), Toughari (33/1), Waterville Lady (66/1)

Verdict

Winner on debut at Leopardstown in July and not disgraced in Group 3 company when last seen in August, the Ger Lyons-trained BRUNELLE can get back to winning ways in a weak looking contest. The Michael O'Callaghan-trained Johan Zoffani kept on well over a similar trip on debut at Naas earlier this month and can improve to emerge as the biggest danger in this contest. Franklin Street, off the mark for connections at the fourth time of asking when landing a Listowel 1m contest on handicap debut earlier this month and the Johnny Murtagh-trained Champers Elysees can pounce on any shortcomings from the main protagonists.
  1. Brunelle
  2. Johan Zoffani
  3. Franklin Street
